Water Polo Wildcats Look to Cement Reputation in WCAL

Over the summer, the men’s club water polo team, known as Fog City, competed in numerous tournaments as a preseason exercise for the upcoming fall season. Because many players on the team would be returning to local clubs for Junior Olympics, this was their last chance to leave an impression on Coach Daniel Figoni before tryouts. The team won two out of three games, defeating West Valley, one of the region's top teams.

Keeping in mind the strong returning senior class and the fresh faces of upcoming juniors and sophomores, Coach Figoni told the team about his goals for the WCAL and the CCS playoffs.  Junior Peter Koros '15 said, “The water polo program, led by the guidance of Coach Figoni, has grown immensely in the past couple of years.  I’m very excited to be a part of a program that cultivates superior athletes; I am looking forward to a new season.”  The team's goalie, Bobby Singer '15, echoed these remarks by noting, “I am very excited to see where this season takes us. With the amount of talent that we have, SI is going to shock a lot of teams this season."
